Due to the coronavirus crisis the course Introduction to AI and neural networks starts online only via video-conference and the course Adversarial Hacking in the Age of AI (with workshops on Adversarial Attacks and GANs) is postponed to the second part of the summer semester 2020.

 


 

Introduction to AI and neural networks

The course is a practical and theoretical introduction to the history of AI, machine learning and neural networks that is accessible and recommended also to first-year students. The course will frame AI techniques in the larger history of media, art and culture, discussing their very recent impact on collective perception, product design and artistic creativity. All materials will be shared via Dropbox. For any question or to register please send an email to: mpasquinelli [∂] hfg-karlsruhe.de

Adversarial Hacking in the Age of AI

This course continues the successful workshop on AI adversarial attacks organised in collaboration with Transmediale festival. Rather than studying AI step-by-step, the course focuses on AI vulnerabilities and limitations in order to understand and disclose its inner workings. As in its traditional definition, the practice of “hacking” is understood as a tool of knowledge to discover the structure of a machine, while the adjective “adversarial” is taken as a metaphor to describe new general strategies of data activism and privacy protection. The issue of AI vulnerabilities will be discussed in its broader cultural, economic and political implications. All materials will be shared via Dropbox.
